Lies, Libertarians, and the Future: The Virginia Election is a Bellwether for the Nation

It’s Election Day in Virginia. With polls putting the unlikable Terry McAuliffe ahead by six points at the eleventh hour, it’s anyone’s guess how this is going to turn out, but it’s not looking good for lovers of life and liberty.
